Casey Kasem, with that wonderful high-pitched yet somehow oddly textured voice of his, will always be remembered as the voice of Shaggy in the Scooby-Doo cartoons. His tremulous utterings contrasted with Don Messick’s growly Scooby-Doo made the show an immediate and enduring success.
The consummate pro, I never heard Casey say a bad word about anyone. Never heard him complain. Never saw him in a bad mood. He was one time, each day, every day, ready to do his job, no excuses, no apologies, no bullshit. His talent and dedication were an example to us all, and it was an honor and a privilege to work with him.
Plus - bonus! - I always knew what was going on with America’s Top Forty.
